THIO-WIPE 2% Details
VAI®’s THIO-WIPE® 2% is a 12”x12” saturated USP 2% Sodium Thiosulfate and USP Water for Injection wipe that has been formulated with surfactants critical for optimal surface penetration and cleaning. THIO-WIPE 2% can be used in sequence with VAI’s HYPO-CHLOR® 5.25% and Process2Wipe® IPA 70 wipes, as step #2 for addressing USP <800> Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings. Furthermore, THIO-WIPE 2% is sterile, therefore, ideally suited for introduction into the ISO 5 areas and for USP <797> compliance.
This Sodium Thiosulfate wipe addresses the sterile pharmacy compounding department’s needs by neutralizing the Sodium Hypochlorite solution and cleaning and decontaminating surface of previously deactivated hazardous drugs. Via neutralization of harsh sodium hypochlorite, sodium thiosulfate helps protect stainless steel compounding surface from corrosion and pitting. Cleaning the surface of these residues improves the overall longevity of the sterile compounding equipment while staying USP <797> and USP <800> compliant.
